Make a fun joke teller to play with friends, family or anyone who comes to visit over Christmas!

To make the joke teller, follow the steps below:

  • Step 1: Cut out the square template or make a square by trimming down a piece of A4 paper
  • Step 2: Fold each corner to the opposite corner diagonally and then unfold flat
  • Step 3: Put the printed side face down. Fold each corner into the centre of the square
  • Step 4: Turn your paper back over so the folds are now face down. Just like the last step, fold each corner into the middle. Your square should be smaller now
  • Step 5: Fold your paper in half from top to bottom and then again from side to side
  • Step 6: Open the flaps and put your fingers inside to control the joke teller

Once you’ve made one, you can ask people to play to find out which joke they’ve chosen.

Once the joke teller is made, ask someone to choose one of the numbers on the outside. Then you count down the number they chose on the fortune teller by opening it top-to-bottom and side-to-side. After that, they choose a Christmassy item and read the joke that’s hidden under that flap.

Activity 2: Customise your own fortune teller

Materials: 1x sheet of A4 or square paper, safety scissors

After you’ve made one using the template, why not make up your own?

You could make one with the Christmas facts on these activity sheets, one to predict whether it’ll be a white Christmas or even to see if the person’s on Santa’s good list!
